Propolis Prevents Hepatorenal Injury Induced by Chronic Exposure to Carbon Tetrachloride

Figure 6

(a) Photomicrograph of kidney of control rat showing well-formed Bowman’s capsule and normal glomeruli (G), uniform space between glomerulus and capsule wall, tubular lumen with basal and apical nuclei (200x). (b) CCl4 administration caused swelling in glomerulus and tubular obstruction. loss of glomerulus space (thick arrows) and (200x). (c) CCl4 exposure caused swelling in glomerulus so that space between glomerulus and capsule wall (curved arrow) was reduced (400x). (d): Administration of propolis retained the kidney histoarchitecture with opened lumen of tubules (T) and uniform space between glomerulus and capsule wall (curved arrow) (200x). (e) Propolis therapy maintained uniform space between glomerulus and capsule wall (curved arrow) (400x). (f) Silymarin therapy recovered the kidney histoarchitecture with wider lumen of tubules (T) (400x).
